In order to provide the most natural appearance, Dr. Harris uses composite resin material to fill your tooth when you have a cavity. This resin is tooth-colored, so no one will ever know you even have a filling!
In order to treat and fill a cavity, Dr. Harris will first numb your tooth and gum area before removing the cavity and effected tooth structure. He then bonds the resin material in place where the cavity once was, restoring the form and function of your original, healthy tooth!
Because they are a common and simple procedure, fillings usually require just one office visit. However, there may be rare occasions when situations complicate a simple cavity, requiring more than one visit for thorough treatment.
